From The IBMA website:


International Bluegrass Music Awards



Bluegrass Recordings, Reported as Released between
April 1, 2007 – March 31, 2008


This list is solely for the informational needs of IBMA members when nominating recorded product for any of the related awards in the first round of balloting.  Due to the limited nature of IBMA’s informational resources, this list does not necessarily contain 100% of the bluegrass recordings first released during the eligibility period, so members are not restricted to the entries on this list when making their first ballot write-in nominations.  Albums re-issued and/or special compilations of previously released material are not listed here, but may contain individual songs eligible for certain awards. 

All recordings are listed in alphabetical order by artist or group name.
